Is America racist?
It’s a question that needs to be asked every once in a while…
As time passes, things sometimes come to light that make people wonder whether race relations in our country are getting better or worse.
Of course, there have definitely been times that, as a country, we’ve fallen short of the ideal put forth in the US Constitution. The Founding Fathers may not have realized just how important their words were going to be 245 years from the time they put them down on paper, but there was still a pure truth in those words: America would always strive to do better in its ultimate goal of freedom for all.
Again, we may not always live up to the ideal, but as long as we try, we’re moving in the right direction.
However, some people (and by “some,” I mean most people on the Left) either believe or WANT to believe that America is a “racist country.”
Well, how else will you convince people that aren’t victims into believing they’ve been victimized for your own political gain?
How else would you convince weaker minds into thinking THEY were responsible for this victimization because of the actions of their ancestors and other people who share nothing but their skin color?
A Question We Should Always Ask
People like me.
My father’s side of the family didn’t come to America from Italy until the early 1900s. My mother’s side of the family is from New York and fought for the Union during the Civil War.
That means my family either wasn’t involved with slavery or actively fought against it… so why am I not seen as an ally?
America isn’t nor was it ever a “racist” country. Were there pockets of racism? Absolutely.
But this country wasn’t built upon the backs of slaves as the 1619 Project would have you believe. It was built on the backs of every American that was alive during that time.
History seems to forget that the indentured Irish servants were treated just as poorly as the Black slaves at times. Some were even murdered by those that held their papers…but history is never remembered accurately, is it?
Slavery was a sin that haunted America’s past, but it’s a sin that the nation started working to remedy as soon as the Civil War was over, culminating with the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which is what gave ALL men, regardless of their skin color, equality under the letter of the law.
However, over the past few years, it’s become en vogue to talk about America as a racist entity. After all, you can’t deconstruct the country and rebuild it in a socialist image until you can make the argument that the current system was built on suppression instead of freedom.
It’s gained popularity too, as many of today’s politicians have jumped on the movement’s bandwagon to help get their agenda of “power at all costs” pushed through.
And while it is hypocritical for any elected leader to make this claim, one of the most vocal politicians on this subject owes her entire LIFE to America’s tolerance and acceptance.
That woman is Ilhan Omar.
Ilhan Omar KNOWS America Isn’t Racist – Here’s Why
Recently, Omar made an appearance on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” hosted by notorious race-baiter Joy Reid, in order to discuss the question of America being a racist country.
Here’s what Omar said: “I think there is a lot of emotional exhaustion that many of us who are Black lawmakers and Black people in public service are experiencing. Because every single day you know that there are ways to transform the justice system, the policing system, and you have to have conversation[s] with people who want to turn a blind eye to the injustices that exist within our systems, who continue to insist that this country is not a country that is racist, that our systems don’t have racism embedded in them.”
That’s because they don’t, Ilhan.
Is there some inherent racism in a FEW individuals?
But is the system itself “racist”?
No! The law is BLIND to color, race, religion, and other factors, so it’s impossible for the system to be racist.
Even more, if the country WERE racist, YOU wouldn’t have a life, a job, or a platform to stand on to spew division! If we were racist, you never would have been saved from a deadly Sudanese civil war and brought to America and given an incredible life…
You never would have been elected to public office if this were a racist country.
You’d never have MILLIONS of followers on social media if this were a racist country.
You’d have been left to rot in a violent land, voiceless in a society that oppresses women.
America isn’t racist…
You just want people to think it is so you can continue to hold power in order to “fix” something that isn’t broken.
But we’re on to you…
We see right through you and your cronies’ attempts to destroy the very country that is responsible for your salvation—and we’re not going to let it happen.
